In a spiritual sense, a soulmate is your other half. Your soulmate is the person God has chosen for you to share both life's greatest joys and painful defeats with. They'll adore you, put you to the test, challenge you, and make you feel feelings you've never felt before with anybody else on the earth.

Your soulmate is the missing piece to your puzzle, the person who completes you. They fill a hole in your heart that no other human being could ever replace, and maybe I'm a hopeless romantic (clearly), but THIS is the only type of love I believe is worth settling for. THIS is the kind of love that's worth the wait. THIS, I believe, is the kind of life God has in mind for people who choose to lay aside their hearts for the one who is supposed to love them.

So, here are ten things I believe you will go through when you find the person God has chosen for you.
- They've seen you at your best and at your worst, and they still choose you. They've seen the unattractive aspects of you. They've seen you at your most vulnerable, full of fears and doubts, and they've chosen to love you nonetheless. They're staying, even though you're afraid they'll leave you one day since you've seen your mother or father go through it. They're here to stay, and they're in love. They're there for the rainbow as well as the storm.
- The tides of life, thick and thin, only serve to bring you closer together rather than rip you apart.
How do you know if God sent your mate?
As a result, whatever you would have men do to you, do to them as well: for this is the law and the prophets.
It is in our nature to be self-centered. To prioritize our own needs over the needs of others. When we enter a relationship, though, we are charged with the responsibility of prioritizing someone else's needs over our own. Mutual respect is a term that many people are unfamiliar with.
Accepting another person's thoughts and opinions without compromising your own is a sign of maturity. Respect for your wishes and desires is a strong evidence that God has sent someone your way. They don't put their desires on you, and instead of always wanting things done their way, they ask what you want.
Open communication without guilt or constant criticism
It's preferable to live in a housetop corner than in a large house with a brawling wife.
One of the signals that God is directing you to the right person is that you may communicate openly with them without fear of being ridiculed or dismissed. Many people find themselves romantically linked with someone who is always unpleasant or dictatorial after the honeymoon phase of a relationship.
Open communication is crucial in any relationship, but especially so in one that is expected to lead to marriage. Not only should it be simple to interact with this person on a regular basis via flirting messages and charming gifs, but it should also be simple to engage with this person about difficult topics. You should be able to sit down as a couple and talk about the future and reach a mutual understanding on issues that affect your lives together.
If you find yourself constantly having to be cautious about what you say for fear of being judged for your viewpoint, it's usually time to terminate the relationship.
Leads you to God and doesn't cause you to compromise
As previously said, Christians should not be unequally yoked with unbelievers; yet, being unequally yoked with someone of similar faith is feasible. Simply because someone attends the same church as you does not imply that they are the appropriate person for you.
One way to tell if God has sent you the right person is if they are guiding you back to Christ.
The person God is bringing you to will always look out for your best interests and will never ask you to compromise on your values or convictions.
They'll pray for you and alongside you, and your relationship will reflect Christ's love for the church.
Trials build you up as a couple instead of tearing you apart
All things are borne, all things are believed, all things are hoped for, and all things are endured.
If a relationship can weather adversity, it is one of the obvious signals that it is robust. When arguments emerge, does your relationship entirely fall apart, or are you able to calmly sit down with this individual and work out your problems? Your response to that question may be the only indicator you need to know if God is directing you to this individual.
No one is without flaws. Because we live in an imperfect world, no relationship is flawless. The ability of the individuals to overcome challenges within the relationship is the difference between a successful contented relationship and a sad one. Examine how this individual handles challenges when they emerge to see if God has sent them to you.
They continue to improve themselves to make the relationship better
And do not be conformed to this world, but be changed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may demonstrate what is God's good, acceptable, and perfect will.
If your relationship improves with time, it's an indication that you and this person are meant to be. This does not happen by chance; both partners must work on themselves individually, progressively improving themselves and, in turn, gradually enhancing the relationship.
We are all born in sin and shaped in iniquity, thus we must all turn to Christ for aid in becoming better versions of ourselves. Every day, we must strive to become more like Christ, and as a result, our lives and everything around us will improve. If you notice this evolution in that person's life, you know God has sent you the one. If they are continually improving themselves, there is a good probability they will be willing to work on improving the relationship over time.
Her husband's heart is secure in her, and he will not be spoilt.
Is it true that you may put your faith in this person? Take one step forward if you answered yes, and one step back if you answered no. It's easy to see why one of the pillars of any successful romantic relationship is trust. When I say trust, I don't only mean that you can trust this person not to cheat on you; I also mean that you can trust this person with your time, energy, and even your money.
When two people marry, they become one person. Many people wind up in marriages where they don't trust their spouse to make simple family decisions. They live in the same house but are two separate people since their lives have not been totally integrated. Can you put your faith in this person's decisions and opinions? If that's the case, it could be a sign that God is bringing you two closer together.
What does God say about your soulmate?
There is no such thing as a true “soulmate” according to the Bible. While there might be a soul tie or link formed when a person is intimate with another person, the Bible does not explicitly state that a predestined relationship exists between two people.
What are the signs of a true soulmate?
2. They're your closest companion.
Because friendship is the best basis for every relationship, why do you think so many rom coms include two BFFs who marry? It's a fantastic indicator if you and your SO have a trustworthy, happy friendship.
3. When you're among them, you feel at ease.
Because you spend so much time with your significant other, you should feel at ease and at ease when you're with them. Naturally, there will be butterflies and nerves at first, but once you've gotten to know one other, it should seem completely natural.
How do you know when God puts someone in your life?
God is very much a part of our life.
- You are aware of when I sit or stand. Even though I'm far away, you know what I'm thinking.
How do you know God is preparing you for a breakthrough?
So, here are three clues that God is preparing you for a great breakthrough that is just around the corner.
1. If God is removing harmful people, places, and things from your life, it could be a sign that a breakthrough is on the way.
God does not construct on sloping ground. God does not strive to cultivate seeds in unsuitable soil. And God will wash you of all sin before bringing you into his presence. My argument is that before God can execute a magnificent work in your life, you must first go through a season of preparation.
Before God blesses you with a breakthrough, he may first remove the people, places, and things in your life that are causing heart damage. If God blessed us before preparing us, we may overlook the blessing of misusing it after we have it. Take a look at what Jesus said in John 15:15. It reads:
My Father is the vinedresser, and I am the genuine vine.
He prunes every branch that bears fruit in me that does not bear fruit, and he prunes every branch that does bear fruit so that it bears more fruit… I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him bears abundant fruit, since you can do nothing without me.”
In John 15:2, you'll notice something interesting. Even if you are bearing fruit for God, Jesus indicated that by pruning you, he will cause you to bear even more fruit for him. This is an excellent illustration of how God frequently requires us to go through a painful season of preparation before he can create even more fruit in our lives. Pruning is the process of removing superfluous material from your life so that more can be produced.
This pruning process can be very difficult and painful if God is removing the people, places, and things in your life that are impeding your growth. Just remember that this is all part of the process leading up to your breakthrough.
What is soulmate connection?
A soulmate is someone with whom you have a natural or profound connection. Similarity, love, romance, platonic relationships, comfort, intimacy, sexuality, sexual activity, spirituality, compatibility, and trust are all examples of this.
The relationship is against God's word
If you're in a relationship that goes against the Bible's values, that's the first clear clue you should end it.
Many of us begin relationships because we feel so connected or in love with the other person, but if the relationship clearly contradicts God's word, it's a clear evidence that it's not one that God endorses.
Feelings and emotions come and go, but God's word is constant; He does not alter.
If you're in an adulterous relationship (cheating on your spouse), for example, you might feel a lot of affection for that person.
However, you'll have to decide whether your relationship with this individual is more essential to you than your salvation at some point.
We can't serve both God and ourselves at the same time. We must choose one. We have the option of choosing between fleeting bliss or eternal life.
The person encourages you to disobey God
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for God's vengeance is coming against the children of disobedience because of these things. Ephesians5:6
If that individual encourages you to disobey God, it's a clear sign that God is urging you to quit the relationship.
Is this individual always urging me to break God's law in order to enjoy worldly pleasures?
Do they ever try to talk me out of going to church or spending time with God?
Do they act as if God's obedience is a choice rather than a necessity?
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, it's possible that God is asking you to flee.
We have a tendency to believe that if we stay with someone long enough, they will change.
Pay more attention to a person's behavior than to what they say. If they're encouraging you to disobey God now, odds are they'll be encouraging you to disobey God in three years.
You have no control when you're with them
No servant can serve two masters because he will either despise one and adore the other, or he will cling to one and despise the other. You can't serve God and mammon at the same time. 16:13 Luke 16:13
When you're with this individual, do you ever feel out of control? Are you moved by emotion and spontaneity? When you're around them, do you go on a spending spree and make unwise decisions?
God desires for us to be wise, rational, and prudent. The enemy wants us to do whatever we want and to give in to our instincts.
When we don't have control over our thoughts and feelings, we make poor life decisions that can lead to major issues down the road.
If you find yourself unable to say no to that person or if they have complete control over your actions, it's likely that they're attempting to manipulate you. So, heed the warning and flee.
You are being treated poorly
If you feel neglected or mistreated, it's time to terminate the relationship.
It makes no difference how long you've been together or how many children you have; if your partner is consistently treating you badly, God is telling you it's time to terminate the relationship.
The person is more important to you than God
We humans have the ability to create idols out of anything and anyone. When someone becomes more important to you than God, it's time to end the relationship.
We have made that person a god in our lives when we seek to please someone over our relationship with God.
Rather than our Heavenly Father, we have placed our trust and hope in a person who is incapable of meeting our needs.
When you find yourself surrendering your Christian principles to please someone, you've made them an idol.
Perhaps it's time to take a step back and reconsider your priorities: is your relationship with God more essential than your romantic relationship?
The relationship has become toxic and overbearing
God is advising you to leave the connection if it has become a source of chronic stress in your life.
Consistent disagreement between two people makes it impossible for them to be in a healthy, happy relationship.
If there is no peace and there is ongoing regret and fighting, it is necessary to pray and seek God's guidance and counsel.
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers, for what kind of association does righteousness have with unrighteousness? What kind of relationship does light have with darkness? 6:14 in 2 Corinthians
Where do soulmates meet?
If you're anything like me, you'll look like a clammy, wet trainwreck after every workout. The gym isn't the place to flaunt your gorgeous side, but you don't have to look like a swan all of the time if you're serious about someone. If there's a regular at the gym you'd want to meet, go up to him or her when you're ready. Not to go all schoolgirl on you, but if approaching strangers makes you anxious, bring a friend with you. You're not the only one who feels this way.
What does soulmate energy feel like?
If you're currently in a relationship with your soulmate, you already know how it feels.
The two of you hit it off right away and get along like you've known each other for years. You're completely compatible, and what you have in common is pure happiness and harmony.
There's an instant connection between you two, almost as if you've known one other for a long time. It's as if fate has brought you two together, and you're meant to be together for some unexplained reason.
This isn't a one-way street. When two people share soulmate energy, they feel the same way you do.
You can't reject the energy transfer because it's just too intense and overwhelming, so if you haven't felt like you've been hit by lightning, you haven't felt soulmate energy.
Here are 20 of the most prevalent soulmate energy indications to help you figure out what it might look like for you.
You click the moment you meet
This is arguably one of the most telling signals that you and another individual share soulmate energy.
It's like a flicker of familiarity when you first meet. After that, you'll feel as if you've known them for years.
This is a strong indication from the spiritual realm that you've just met your soulmate. It can occur at any time and in any place.
When you meet this individual, you will immediately feel at ease. It's been described as “love at first sight,” but it's best described as “feeling at home.”
